Abstract
  • The Phoenix mission, launched on 4 August 2007, landed in the far northern plains of Mars on 25 May 2008. In order to prepare for the landing events and the 90-sol mission, a significant amount of work has gone into characterizing the atmospheric environment at this location on Mars for northern late spring through midsummer. In this paper we describe the motivation for the work and present our results on atmospheric densities and winds expected during the Phoenix entry, descent, and landing, as well as near-surface pressure, temperature, winds, surface temperature, and visible optical depth expected over the course of the science mission
